1) If the electric field is zero everywhere inside a region of space, the potential must also be
zero in that region.
Answer: FALSE
2) When the electric field is zero at a point, the potential must also be zero there.

14) In discussing energy stored by an electric field the concept of energy density is used. Why is
this concept important?
Answer: Electric field strength varies with position, hence the energy stored per unit volume is
a meaningful concept.
